    The noise level was so loud we gave up on having a conservation!!! The service was very slow and the steaks were over cooked. We did not bring this to our waiters attention because we were so ready to get out of the noise. The skipped the dessert because we did not have another hour to spend there. So much so our special fine dining experience of the month.

    We always enjoy Kirby's. Great food, atmosphere and service. We started out in the bar to enjoy a Happy Hour drink -- a martini -- which was huge. Then we were seated for dinner. The food and the service was very good as usual. The only negative was that the restaurant was not crowded at all (a Monday night), yet the hostess sat us at a table right next to where a huge party was to be seated. There were 15-20 people at the very next table, who got very loud, placing a damper on the experience one would expect from Kirby's. Like I said, we were seated first, or we would have requested a different table. There were tons of other tables which we could have been placed. I'm assuming they knew well in advance that this large party was coming.

    Steak would melt in your mouth and cooked to my perfection. The crab was excellent, with large lumps of meat and little filler. Desert was a molten chocolate cake with ice cream. Absolutely sinful. Another great meal was had on a special occasion.

    The steak and ahi tuna entrees were exceptional. A soup or salad was included with the entrees which is not expected at most steak houses. We ordered wine by the glass but they had an extensive wine list. On Sunday nights they have half price wine on bottles under $200 which is something to know for the future. The service was excellent. Our waiter was Keith. He was there enough to take care of us but not enough to be a nuisance. The dessert was awesome.

    This our first time at Kirby's. I cannot say enough about this place! What a find. Our table for five was situated next to the bar, which provided an intimate location for our evening of celebration and fun. We began with drinks, which were perfect, and an appetizer of Calamari. The appetizer was more than sufficient for five adults, and the crisp texture and light breading allowed the sweet flavor of the calamari to pop. The entrees we ordered were outstanding. At a steak house, you expect to find superior beef dishes, but the lamb and pork were equally tasty and tender. For dessert, we took our waiter's suggestion of ordering one piece of chocolate cake and sharing. OMG! That was the biggest piece of cake ever and so delicious!

    I ordered an 18 oz ribeye (medium-rare) and added on the Jumbo Lump Crab Oscar. The steak was cooked perfectly and the flavor was good. However, at this price point, I expected better quality beef. The fat in the steak was isolated in large chunks, rather than marbled throughout as expected.

    We have been a number of times on Sunday evening which is great because it is half-price wine night. Kirby's always has great steaks and much quieter than some of the other steak places in Grapevine. We can actually visit and hear each other!

    Our first time to this place and it was a landmark birthday so we wanted something special. Kirby's truly delivered. Excellent drinks at the bar. Our table was ready on time and the service excellent. The rack of lamb my husband described as "the best ever." My peppercorn filet was delicious, cooked just as ordered & very tender. One side was more than two of us could eat. From start to finish, a great experience! Looking forward to another special occasion at Kirby's in Southlake TX.

    Everything was good except some of the food, we started with escargot and bread which was very very good, so where the cocktails. Salads well...they put a little lettuce with the dressing, way to much dressing so next time we will ask for it on the side. The Sea Bass was good but the Lobster had absolutley no flavor. Bake potato nice to have since so many places don't serve them any more. The ambiance and service was good just wished our salads and lobster was too.

    Kirby's, as it always has for multiple years of visits, delivered an outstanding meal. This is an old school steak house. Don't bring your family, you shouldn't consider bringing a date. It's an old boy, eat food that is bad for you, single malt dessert type place. Kirby's does not disappoint. For a couple of very demanding steak guys Kirby's is consistently a highlight. Appetizers, salads, sides and desserts all took a back seat to the main course. Two beautiful 10 oz filets. Done to perfection, butter tender and served smoking from the grill. Price was what you would expect for high end food like this. Not something we can afford for a casual night out, but still a value for what we got. Don't eat lunch and get to Kirby's.

    Was looking for Prime Rib; by chance I visited Kirby's on Saturday (not knowing they just serve it only Fridays & Saturdays. I wasn't disappointed at all. It was great as well as the service (even though the place was packed & the rest of my dinner. I arrived 5 minutes before my reservation time & my table was waiting & ready (actually the only one free at the time); so making reservation with OpenTable was the wise thing to do & as always it worked great.

    I have eaten at this resaurant before and it has been consistently good. Thies experience has me convinced never to return. We had reservations for my birthday. When we arrived we were shown to a table and seated. 15 minutes no server had approached us to take drink orders. I asked another server for assistance our service did show up. We order two glasses of wine and waited another 15 minutes for the drinks to arrive. We were ready to order but again no server. Finally after 45 minutes in the restaurant we were able to place our order. Another 45 minutes passed and we still waited for our foor. I asked for the manager. Said we did not want our meal and wanted to pay for our drinks and leave. The food showed upand we sent it back.

    We went for a romantic night and got sat in the middle of the restaurant. We were sitting next to each other and had to yell to hear each other. They were happy to move us to a booth on the outside of the dining room. This was much better. We could hear each others. My steak was overdone but still good. My husbands steak was over done one one side and underdone on the other. This was the special smoked steak and it was phenomenal despite the cooking. Sides were alright, nothing spectacular. Would have like to had the option for smaller sides so we could order more than two. Staff was phenomenal. Cheesecake dessert for our anniversary was amazing!!!

    I had never been to Kirby's before, but expected a normal "steak house" type of dinner. I was wrong - it was fantastic! The wine list was very extensive and it took a bit to find one we wanted. My wife ordered a filet mignon and I ordered a special - a Mesquite smoked filet mignon...it was unbelievable. My wife had a bite and said it was hard to go back to her "normal" filet which was also very good and cooked perfectly. As I side I added the jalapeno and bacon mac and cheese along with the Jack Daniels Sweet potatoes that came with my steak. We were way to full for dessert but the ones that we saw being delivered to tables around us looked fantastic. I will definitely be back!

    This place looks like, noise level like and tastes worse than a Denny's. It's definitely not a fine dining steakhouse even though the website and photos portray it to be. It looks outdated and the food is outdated. Our food was swimming in butter: appetizers, side dishes, and main courses. Our Redfish and Salmon both had at least 1/2 cup of butter poured directly on top. Our waiter explained zero during the ordering process. He also kept disappearing and when he finally showed back up he noticed we were not eating our food. We only ate the salad. He have us a "to go box and pointed out a bag" for "us to box up our food". We did not want to take it, as it was not edible. $179 later before tip, we will never go back nor refer anyone.

    I would say the dinner was average. I was expecting more for the price. For $150.00 for 3 guests with no drinks I expect more than average. The food was good, but was only lukewarm. The service was good but did not make me want to tip anymore than average. The last time we were there it was a wonderful experience. This time, we said we wish we had gone to Bob's or Ruth Chris. I just felt a little cheated for what we received verses what paid.

    Restaurant was obnoxiously loud. Band playing was overbearingly noisy. Bar was overrun with local wanna be crowd that was dressed for Walmart and shouting to fellow patrons as if in a saloon. The steaks were not bad but too much fat and low quality for the price. Wine was overpriced low quality selections. We paid for the equivalent of a steak dinner at The Palm and received above average Outback. This place tries with some effort to be so much more than it is. Much better available in the area for the price.
